For Artown 2021, the Nevada Historical Society will be offering a new presentation each Tuesday in July. This week, Neal Cobb will present the story of Harolds Club, which started as a hole-in-the-wall operation in 1935 and eventually became the largest casino in the world.
The Nevada Historical Society will also be offering a new installment of High Noon with Neal Cobb. This week Neal will be joined by Jack Bacon, who will discuss 19th and 20th century painters of Nevada.
Registration is required, but if you are unable to attend these online events live, you will be able to view archived videos here.

After a long fun day of pounding the pavement at Pride Festival, your feet are heavy and tired. Get yourself home for a relaxing natron foot bath! Sit back, relax, and grab that book you borrowed from the library last week.
In response to the pandemic, Washoe County Library System suspended all in-person programs and use of our reservable meeting rooms. We will continue to reintroduce services throughout the year, and in September we will again be offering meeting rooms and events at our libraries.
Until then, please visit our website for information about upcoming and archived events.
